Bike & Go asks Merseyside cyclists to identify the most picturesque rides
The bike rides could take place anywhere across the region, as long as they feature at least one Insta-worthy hotspot. Bike & Go offers bikes-for-hire at 22 stations across the Merseyrail network
What is the most “Instagrammable” bicycle ride in Merseyside? That is the question posed by bike hire operator Bike & Go which has laid down a photo challenge.
Bike & Go offers bikes-for-hire at 22 stations across the Merseyrail network as well as at Seacombe Ferry Terminal and Leasowe Castle, both in Wirral.
The #Instacycleroutes guide will celebrate the bike rides with the best photo opportunities in England and Scotland – the two countries in which Bike & Go operates – to help social media stars find new selfie locations while also showcasing nearby cycle routes.
The bike rides could take place anywhere across the region, as long as they feature at least one Insta-worthy hotspot. The suggestions will then be compiled into an online guide which will be made available on the Big & Go website.
To suggest a bike ride, users need to tweet @UKBikeandGo or upload to Bike & Go’s Facebook page using the hashtag #Instacycleroutes, or email suggestions to firstname.lastname@example.org. All suitable entries will be compiled into the online guide.
The latest Bike & Go project follows hot on the heels of the Quirky Bike Ride Guide, which was published earlier this year to mark the wide range of unusual bike rides on offer across the UK.
Suzanne Grant, Bike & Go commercial director, said: “We know from the interaction we’ve had with our users that many love to photograph their bike rides and share them on social media.
“We also know that social media users are always looking for ways to create new content, and believe that showing people some of the amazing sights you can see while out cycling could encourage even more people to take to two wheels.
“We’re appealing to everyone who knows of bike rides with some great photo opportunities to share them with us, so that even more people can enjoy the best cycle routes the region has to offer and post their experiences online.”
